GODZILLA VS KONG MOVIE REVIEW
The battle of the major-domo monsters is finally here, as Legendary Entertainment’s Monsterverse comes to a head with Godzilla, previously in their “Godzilla” and “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”, battling it out with a now-bigger and older King Kong, previously seen in their “Kong: Skull Island”. Who will win? Will we care about any of the humans running around, some from previous films but mainly not so much? I’ll say this for now: thank goodness they brought some wackadoodle super-science into this. Chris, Mark, and Marco review this and they bring in our resident all-things-giant-monster expert Matt Frank to round out the team (check out his podcast series on One of Us, Giganticast) and the results…well, they may surprise you.
**This is also available in a considerably longer, uncut, spoiler video review version for TIME LORD subscribers and above right here**

Christopher Lawrence Cox (Founder, Da Boss)
Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal” turned into a full-time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
